Spicy Ranch Chicken Dinner in the Crock Pot

This is Good. I mean really good. The even better part is that it has bacon in it. I love bacon. Do you like bacon?

Who doesn't like throwing dinner in a pot and going about your day and coming home to a nice hot meal.

I know I do.

This dish contains so many of my favorites and it's so easy to make.

Take the stick of Real Butter and throw it in the bottom of the crock pot.

Add your boneless skinless chicken thighs/breasts. (totally depends on if you like white or dark meat)

Open 2 cans of diced potatoes and 2 cans of green beans (drain them all) and dump them in.

Now open your dry pack of Spicy Ranch Salad Dressing Mix.
  ( If you don't like spicy use the regular)

Now cut up 1 Green Bell Pepper into bite size pieces and throw it in on top.

Next you will need about 8 strips of cooked bacon. 
Just fry it up real quick and eat the leftovers.
See you can get dinner ready while making breakfast. Even better.

Drain your bacon and throw the pieces in on top of the bell peppers.

Now set your crock pot on high for a good 4-5 hours or if you are going to be gone all day you can cook it on low for 8 hours.

There you have it the prep time to get this ready is about 10 minutes of cooking bacon and chopping a bell pepper.

Serve it up with a dinner salad if you like and voila.

Dinner in a hurry so you can relax and enjoy time with your family and friends.

Happy Eating,

My husband would love this because he loves spicy foods so does my son but he'll need something to drink to go along with it, but we are very picky well I should say I am I'll probably substitute a few things or add in when done like the bacon and onions and stuff. I know I'm a pain, but thanks for this recipe. I love crock pots they are a life saver!

  5. This looks really yummy! I use my crockpot a lot as a single mom, it's so much easier coming home to having dinner made - and this one looks like it would be a crowd pleaser with my daughter!
